CBD Coffee is one of the most effective ways to get your daily CBD drink in. In the UK alone, 95 million cups of coffee are consumed daily, with 65% drunk at home. That's roughly 62 million at-home cups and 33 million on the go in just one 24-hour cycle.
Based on those astronomical numbers, the UK is powered by coffee. But have you ever felt like those coffee shakes pushed you over the edge? And why not? Coffee and caffeine have several health benefits.
At Mee CBD, we turn any drink into a CBD Drink - that includes a coffee curled up on the sofa, a breakfast sharpener, or a quick coffee shop stop en route to an important meeting. Our customers report taking the edge off coffee sharpness to stay alert but in control.
Join the CBD Coffee revolution and see if you can replace the jitters with a barista-sized boost of focus and relaxation. Let's take a look at what coffee has to offer!
Health Benefits of Coffee
Several studies show the positive effects of drinking coffee, like how coffee beans contain various nutrients and are natural antioxidants (contributing to cell growth and recovery). Coffee is also scientifically proven to speed up metabolism, boost brain function and reduce the risk of diabetes and liver disease. Plus, coffee has psychological benefits.
Although we might associate coffee with anxiety, research from Harvard shows coffee drinkers are 20% less likely to become depressed, meaning coffee positively impacts mental health conditions.
Despite these coffee-induced benefits, it's no secret that coffee isn't always a good choice. Drinking too much coffee can increase heart rate, increase anxiety, and cause panic attacks.
Those who already struggle with these conditions might try to steer clear of highly caffeinated drinks like coffee. In addition, studies show that consuming caffeine past two in the afternoon can disrupt sleep, leading to more severe health issues.

Combining Coffee and CBD
The popularity of coffee and the increasing market for CBD means it's not surprising CBD coffee has become a trend. And it's not just those interested in the CBD market testing this; everyday coffee drinkers are now experimenting with adding CBD to their coffee.
Is CBD coffee a good way to consume CBD?
Mee CBD's water-soluble formulation makes it easy to add to your daily coffee ritual. However, you may prefer to take CBD with a smoothie or post-workout.
CBD in coffee appeals to many seasoned CBD and coffee lovers. If you are new to CBD, we suggest first trying it in isolation with a small cup of water.
However, if you're a regular user of Mee CBD, add some of Mee's Advanced water-soluble CBD and CBG range to your favoured coffee to make a perfectly dosed, high-quality, delicious CBD Coffee. If you feel a balancing around the intensity of the coffee "high", then perhaps you are onto a winner.
For the more adventurous, here are three fun CBD Coffee recipes - one direct from the Mee Team's coffee lab, one from Mexico and one from Vietnam.

Mexican Spiced Coffee
Mexican cuisine is famous for its tacos, quesadillas and tequila. However, people often forget the spiced coffee! First prepared during the Revolutionary wars to bring energy to the soldiers, the recipe has continued over many decades. And now, it's time for Mee CBD to share our take on this delicious CBD drink.
Here's how to make Mexican CBD coffee:
- Strong coffee
- Teaspoons of sugar, to your preference
- Cocoa Powder
- A spoonful of cinnamon
- A touch of nutmeg
- A little cayenne pepper, depending on how much you like spice!
- Cream or a non-dairy substitute
- 1-2 drops of Mee CBD
And now, to combine the ingredients for this spicy CBD drink. Firstly, brew your coffee and mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix in your spicy cocoa mix to your coffee - perhaps with a cinnamon stick - then add in your cream before popping in a drop of Mee CBD. Sprinkle some spice, and there you have it - a warming Mexican Spiced CBD Coffee!
Pumpkin Spiced CBD Latte
Autumn is here. Well, it's been here for a while. But we love these warming flavours throughout the year - add some Mee CBD to create the ultimate caffeine and CBD combination for December.
Here's how you make one of our favourite CBD drink recipes:
- Coffee. Espresso, mocha pot or French press? Whatever your preference
- A little pumpkin puree, either from the can or making your own
- Sugar - however much you like!
- Pumpkin pie spice - either from the shop or mix some cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves and ground nutmeg
- A little bit of vanilla extract
- Hot milk
- 1-2 drops of Mee CBD
So, how do you combine the ingredients to make this delicious CBD coffee recipe?
First, brew your coffee, then add it to a saucepan over medium heat with the pumpkin, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract. Mix it up, then add 1-2 drops of Mee CBD to turn your coffee into a CBD drink.
Meanwhile, heat your milk in another saucepan. You want this to froth up. While that's happening, pour your hot CBD coffee mix into a big mug. Afterwards, carefully pour your milk on top. We're no coffee connoisseurs here, so there are no patterns for us, but if you consider yourself an expert - go for it!
